Sometimes it’s good to break with the traditions of painting flat on the floor on a flat sheet of canvas and go for one that’s already been stretched around the frame.
I rarely do this because, to a certain extent, it constrains you with what you can and can’t do with the paints.
However, that is also a good thing because it shapes the way you paint and means you have to be very mindful of the edges and give them respect. In turn that means the painting will be a bit different and Ultramaffic is no exception.
Using colours and shapes
These two things are the backbones of my work and everything I do is formed from these. So in this painting I believe they are even more critical because I haven’t got that much space to work with as I would normally have.
So whatever I decided it was going to be was based on the size of the shapes and movements I could fit on and the combination of colours used to translate that in the most dramatic way possible.
